A Greyhound, A Groundhog

A Greyhound, A Groundhog

eBook - 2017
Rate this:
From a heavyweight author-and-illustrator duo comes a delicious tongue twister of a picture book that features a little round greyhound and a little round groundhog. With very spare, incredibly lively language, this is an entertaining read-aloud, with two amazing—and oh-so-adorable—characters at its heart. When a greyhound meets a groundhog, wordplay and crazy antics ensue. The two animals, much like kids, work themselves into a frenzy as they whirl around and around one another. (Around, round hound. Around, greyhound.) The pace picks up (Around and around and astound and astound), until they ultimately wear themselves out. "Jenkins's masterful text is deceptively simple." —NPR on Toys Meet Snow by Emily Jenkins "Appelhans, whose career up to now has been in animated films such as Coraline, is a revelation." —Booklist, Starred, on Sparky!, illustrated by Chris Appelhans "Appelhans makes an auspicious picture book debut with strikingly beautiful watercolor and pencil illustrations. His style, reminiscent of Jon Klassen's, incorporates a muted color palette, but with a slightly softer, rounder quality, while also weaving in visual deadpan humor." —The Horn BookFrom the Hardcover edition.
